Eden Prairie wing Ethan Wragge established himself as one of the nation's top shooters this summer playing in Las Vegas with the Minnesota Magic. This fall when it came to visits his first choice was Creighton last weekend. Last night after an open gym Wragge made his college selection.
As a 6-foot-6 wing from Eden Prairie Wragge is a shooter with a quick release who needs just a little room to get off his high releasing jumpshot. Given room coming off screens Ethan's the type of player who can sink four or five in a row in a heart beat and sometimes go off for seven or eight triples in a game.
It was this type of ability that led to interest from Creighton as well as an official visit last weekend that went well. "The visit went really good," Wragge stated. "I enjoyed the campus and I enjoyed playing with the team."
After the visit the Creighton staff told Ethan they would make an appearance at his open gym Tuesday as they had not yet offered. Coach Dana Altman showed up at the Eden Prairie gym along with an assistant last night and things went very well.
"The open gym was good," Wragge said. "I committed to Creighton. When I went on my official I liked the guys on the team a lot. I also liked coach Altman a lot. The situation just felt right.
"Last night coach Altman came over after open gym and offered me a scholarship. After the offer was granted I accepted it."
Wragge had trimmed his list recently to Creighton, Minnesota, Marquette, Penn State, and Michigan. He had visited Marquette two weeks ago during the week and had planned an official to Penn State.
